Iris bearded

Bearded irises

  • Easy to grow provided that you plant them in a sunny site with well-drained soil.
  • Plant (between march - oct) in groups, with 30cm (1ft) between larger plants and 15cm (6in) between dwarf plants.
  • Bearded irises do not do well in containers, as they have a large root system.
  • Irises need full sun to thrive. Irises in full shade produce fewer blooms and may suffer from an increase in diseases.
  • Heavy clay soils do not work well for growing iris, but sandy or gravelly soils are excellent.
  • Although irises like moisture, they also need good drainage to prevent rot problems.
  • Water them when the top 2 inches of the soil feels dry. These plants have a good tolerance for drought.
  • Plant with the bulbous rhizome exposed
  • Lift split the climbs every 4 to 5 years.
